Vodafone lands new GPS Blackberry Curve

The latest member of the Curve family can now be ordered online from Vodafone and will be exclusive to the operator from 3 September to 31 October 2007.

And thanks to a slick tie-up between the manufacturer and the operator, the new Blackberry Curve 8310 combines its built-in GPS functionality with Vodafone's own sat nav solution.

Vodafone sat nav, powered by Telmap, helps drivers avoid getting stuck in traffic jams with instant access to live traffic alerts; and provides weather updates and a host of other useful information such as restaurant reviews. Customers also grab the most up-to-date maps and directions on their smartphone, as the service retrieves information over the Vodafone network refreshing maps every three months.

In addition to its navigation prowess, the BlackBerry Curve 8310 offers the usual push email benefits, a heap of business functionality and applications, plus a two megapixel camera, media player and a desktop software suite for managing multimedia content.

The BlackBerry Curve 8310 is also compatible with a wide range of third party applications, including currency converters and expense managers, plus fitness guides and games. Vodafone customers can also customise the home menu in order to have easy access to the applications they use most.

Pricing and Availability
Free 12 months subscription to Vodafone Sat Nav is available to customers connecting to the BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS) bought in store, online or through Vodafone telesales. The BlackBerry Curve 8310 is available on either BlackBerry personal or business price plans with prices starting at free, dependent on price plan.

RIM's new Blackberry Curve 8310 smartphone will boast GPS sat nav and will be exclusive to Vodafone.
